"Made this for Thanksgiving. I used a bag of frozen chopped brocolli and frozen chopped cauliflower - thawed, rinsed in cold water, and dried on paper towel. Made it extra quick. And everyone loved it. Also used Sweet Italian dressing - went really well with the veggies. Next time may add some bell peppers to the mix also."
